Service Provider License Agreement (SPLA)

With near zero start-up costs, for anyone new to Microsoft Licensing, setting up operations, or expanding, the SPLA provides a distinct advantage of a 'pay-as-you-go' software leasing arrangement, charging only for the number of users per month. The most current software versions are ensured and product use rights and monthly prices per user are fixed for the duration of the program.
